The Beaver in all of Us


The Beaver, stretches beyond the level of a Walter Black’s(Mel Gibson) individual psychological torment into one that each one of us share.Our own fears of looking into our past and finding things we don’t like is quite the struggle the protagonist faces in the movie.

The Brit accent The Beaver puts on is quite funny to listen to,Jodie foster as the wife and the Director of the movie does justice to both.Anton Yelchin as the son fulfills the role of the Troubled teenager, Riley Thomas as the younger son,too young to understand the seriousness of a family and finally Jennifer Lawrence as Anton’s love interest and as a teen unable to cope up with her own brothers death blends in the role perfectly.

The Beaver who begins as a puppet and the last resort in the life of man whose got nothing to lose and turns into an individual itself with a mind of its own.The depressed individual that Walter is forcesĀ  him into accepting the Beaver as a necessary evil.The movie emphasizes on how fragile a family is and at the same time and that when a member of the family starts talking to a puppet, Rip that Puppet.
